Regenerate Imports File

What is the status of Docker and do we have documentation on its use?

Obsoletion plugin for Protege

Does everyone have Jim's plugin? If not we should all install it and I will update the documentation. What is the status of the merge plugin?


There was a recent thread about the scope of dbxrefs in the ontology. If we are going to use the dbxrefs to seed an alignment between GO Rhea and Reactome, at least for MF, they should be 1:1.

Did this get covered last week?

GO subsets (slims)

(pull request failing but we can sort this out another time)

  • List of subsets:
  • Active:
    • goslim_agr.yaml -> 59 classes - active
    • goslim_pombe.yaml -> 55 classes -active
    • goslim_synapse.yaml -> 344 classes- active
    • goslim_mouse.yaml -> 45 classes - active

    • goslim_aspergillus.yaml -> 85 classes - email xx
    • goslim_candida.yaml -> 89 classes - email xx
    • goslim_goa.yaml -> not used - email Tony and George
    • goslim_metagenomics.yaml -> 116 classes - who to contact ??
    • goslim_pir.yaml -> 462 classes - email Darren
    • goslim_plant.yaml -> 99 classes - email Tanya
    • goslim_virus.yaml -> 29 classes - email Philippe, Patrick and - others ?
    • goslim_yeast.yaml -> 169 classes - email Stacia and Suzi A

  • Check at ontology call:
    • goantislim_grouping.yaml -> 49 classes, mostly 'x part'
    • goslim_chembl.yaml -> 310 classes
    • goslim_generic.yaml -> 150 classes
    • gosubset_prok.yaml (status: obsolete)
    • mf_needs_review.yaml
    • termgenie_unvetted.yaml -> all terms are (obviously) obsolete. Is this useful ?

Ontology Developers' workshop possibility- Geneva in September?

  • David, Pascale and Kimberly will discuss possible dates and make a doodle poll.
  • August will likely not work since so many people are away on vacation

Outstanding Pull Requests

  • Can we move towards merging and closing these?

Multicellular Organism Signaling and ChEBI Import File

  • The unmerged request for obsoleting multicellular organism signaling is not working because there is a link to signaling coming from the chebi imports file
  • The link can be removed in Protege but then it will return when the chebi imports is loaded
    • This would lead to an error with the next ChEBI imports update
  • The only file changed locally is the go_edit.obo file
  • Why are we still importing relations from the imports file?
    • We shouldn't be getting these GO relations from ChEBI
  • Jim has been working on improving this workflow but it is still a work-in-progress
  • We need to communicate this change to ChEBI, but even so, this shouldn't prevent the GO editors from working
  • Pascale created a new ticket to move towards not importing GO relations from other ontologies
    • Jim will link to this ticket to reference the other work that he is doing (may be ready by the end of the summer)
